Dealing with child custody problems in Connecticut

To say that divorce is sad is an understatement. When a marriage breaks down for whatever reason in Connecticut, it means the family dynamic also changes. If the couple has children, child custody issues come into play, and they, too, aren't always without problems. Co-parenting in two different households can be overwhelming, not only for the parents but for the children, too.

But when parents both decide to put their children's best interests first before anything else, things may go much smoother than if they try to outdo each other. When a parent has physical custody of a child, it means the child lives with that parent most of the time. Legal custody refers to the parent who has the authority to make legal decisions for the child, such as health decisions, where the child goes to school, etc. Many parents may want joint physical custody, but they have to ask themselves if that is what's best for the child.

Even when the break-up was difficult, when parents work together to iron out their differences when it comes to their children, they still have control. When custody issues head to court, a judge makes those decisions, and neither parent may be satisfied. Flexibility is crucial when it comes to child custody and co-parenting.

When former spouses can't agree on the terms of child custody, they both need to enlist the help of individual lawyers. A Connecticut lawyer may be able to help his or her client present a case in court as to why he or she believes one situation may be better than another for the children. Having a lawyer put together a strong case may help a family court judge make a prudent decision.

  • Hi Yuliana and Attorney Prince, Thank you so much for taking time out of your busy day to meet with me. I really appreciated how compassionate you were while listening to my situation, even through my tears. Thank you so much for sharing such valuable information with me. I left feeling very hopeful that when the dust settles, I’ll be ok.
  • Wendy helped guide us through a very difficult and emotional process and was really able to provide an even and fair account for both parties. It's quite evident in her expertise in this area but the way she was able to make you feel safe and secure in a very insecure time goes far beyond her legal prowess. If the two parties are really willing to cooperate and collaborate, she's there to help gain the best possible solution for all involved, especially if there are children.
  • Regardless of how committed one is to the fact that divorce may be imminent and necessary, it is truly one of the most emotional and stressful situations one can experience. It can also be daunting. Wendy has a remarkable ability to cut through the noise and help you focus on the big picture while drilling down on what is most pertinent to your particular situation., they are a formidable team who work collectively with your best interests in mind.
